Aroma

Brown bread, molases, pine hops, toasted malts and mocha coffee.

Toasted bready malt, bitter spruce hops, mocha coffee and clove spice.

Aftertaste

Bitter spruce needle, toasted nutty malt with nutmeg and cloves. A big beer with a high alcohol content, but balanced and surprisingly quaffable.
